Sold for US$ 812 inc. premium
A silk shirt worn by Piper Laurie as Mr. Tojamura on Twin Peaks
CBS, 1990-91. Brown silk mens dress shirt with alternating tonal stripes and medallion pattern, bearing a Byblos label. Laurie wears this shirt in episode 13 of Twin Peaks as Mr. Tojamura, when she meets with Ben after dinner at the Great Northern.

At the end of the first season of Twin Peaks, Laurie's character, Catherine Martell, was last seen at the sawmill fire. Creator David Lynch called Laurie before the second season started shooting and asked her about taking on a new role. "'You will return in some sort of disguise, as a man, and you'll spy on the town and create trouble for everyone--your husband, your lover, everyone" (Laurie, Piper, Learning to Live Out Loud, NY: Crown, 2011, p. 300). Lynch's plan required Laurie to commit to total secrecy, going to the set each day in full makeup and assuming the identity of Fumio Yamiguchi, a renowned Japanese actor who had long worked with Akira Kurosawa and had come to the U.S. to make a guest appearance on Twin Peaks.
